Hi everyone! I’m so excited about today’s post! I’ve been testing out Juice Beauty’s Stem Cellular CC Cream for over a week now and I got a good idea about how I feel about this product. So let’s hear it!

What It Claims

Okay, so let’s start off with what this products is and what it claims. This CC (color correcting) cream is made with certified organic products. It claims to be a “12 in 1 multi tasking CC cream for the ultimate in age defying, skin perfecting results” Here is a list of them:

  • Reduces appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Broad spectrum sun protection
  • Evens skin tone
  • Smooths uneven texture
  • Creates a radiant, glowing complexion
  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Protects with mineral SPF 30
  • Ultimate moisturizer
  • Skin perfecting color
  • Mineral tinted coverage
  • No chemical sunscreen
  • Non-nano natural sunscreen

My Skin Type

Before I go on with the demo I’d like to give you guys a little background about my skin and what I look for in a foundation, bb cream, cc cream, etc…

I have normal to oily skin. For the most part my skin is normal but will occasionally get oily in the t-zone. I have a few acne scars around my cheek and chin area and redness all over. Sigh…

Okay, so what I look for in a product for my base is something that is lightweight. Something that will not look or feel cakey, that is somewhere between dewy and matte. It has to be somewhat long wearing. I hate having to check up on my makeup throughout the day. So it has to be something that I can put on and forget about the rest of the day.

Demo & Review

This product I find to be very hydrating. It almost has the feel of a lip balm. Just a tad less oily. I use a dime size amount for the first layer.

I then dot it all over my face and use my hands to blend it in. I’ve tried using a brush and beauty blending sponge but the coverage of this product is so light that using anything other than your hands sheer it out way too much. So your hands are your bffs for this cc cream.

This CC Cream does a great job when it comes to evening out the skin tone. As you can see from the picture below, with one layer it does a nice job although you can still see some uneven skin tone around my mouth and chin area.

It does layer up nicely, but you do have to make sure to let the first layer dry and settle in before applying the second layer. Usually for the second layer I just apply it in the areas where I feel I need the most coverage which is around my chin and mouth area.

You have to set this product with a powder. Otherwise, it will move around throughout the day and might make your bronzer or blush look muddy. Nobody likes that look! Oh! And if you don’t powder, the product will crease up your under eye concealer and eye shadow, you’ve been warned.

I also find that when I don’t powder, and even when I do, sometimes my face will feel a little tacky or sticky even a couple of hours after I apply it. Again, this is probably just because I don’t need so much hydration.

The Verdict

“So, Ana do you like it or not?!!”

Do I like it? Yes, I do. Do I think it is worth the $39 bucks I paid? Maybe. Will I purchase this again? Probably not. 

Here is the thing, I think this product does what it claims to do. But it is just not what I am looking for. In other words, its not you, its me. 😉

This Product Will Work For: I think this product is perfect for people that are looking for light to medium coverage. It is perfect for all my dry skin type friends! If you have normal skin you might like it, or be able to make it work with powdering up. 🙂

Final Thoughts:  This is a light to medium coverage cc cream, that needs to be set with powder. If you have oily skin, stay away. I repeat, stay away! It is so hydrating that it will make you look like a grease ball. I’m sorry. Its true. However, if you have normal to combination skin It leaves a dewy finish and it does leave you with a natural look, which I’m a fan of.

I really do like this product, I wish so bad that it worked better with my skin type, but it is just not happening for me. So, if you guys have any suggestions of any other base products I should try out please leave me a comment! I’ll be sure to check it out and maybe I’ll do another review.

On to the next beauty product!

Love you all!

  1. So happy you did this review! You saved me the money for trying myself. We have exactly the same skin type. I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Have you tried that before? It is perfect for our skin type and doesn’t need to be set with a powder, unless you want to. It’s pricy, but so worth the money and it lasts forever (a little goes a long way). Have a great week!

  2. You look beautiful! I’ve tried the CC cream in two different shades, and I felt the same way- it made me a bit oily. I also wasn’t a fan of the coverage- I’ve tried a few CC creams and they have had the coverage of foundation, but felt amazing on my skin. Thank you for the review 🙂

    1. Thank you for the compliments Tabitha! It was such a bummer that I couldn’t fall completely in love with this product. I think it has amazing potential for other skin types, just not mine. Will be trying other products in the next couple of weeks, let me know if you have any suggestions! 🙂

    1. Glad it was helpful to you Emma 🙂 Oh Tarte <3 Of course, which product did you have in mind? I know they have a few foundations/powders and such. Let me know and I'll be sure to get it and give it a go 😀

  3. Hello there!! Thanks for the review. I love the smell of this product. I use a makeup base under all of my foundations and B.B.’s ans CC’s. Maybe that will help with your product staying on. Thanks again.

    1. Hi Christine! So glad this product works for you. Its all about skin types and preferences. I really do think its good! Will try it with a primer and see how it works out. Thanks for your comment! <3
